An exciting novel that plung us into the magical story of writing. 10th century,
Qurtuba, ancient Cordoba, capital of the new Caliphate empire and boundary of the known world, because beyond it extends only the Sea of Darkness. The jewel and mirror of this city is the Library of Al- Halkam II, caliph known as Lord of Books, where Maryam collects, transcribes and keeps its four hundred thousand volumes. To Qurtuba will arrive Abul Anbas, a merchant of books that ignores that between the volumes of different origins and materials he sells there is an unimaginable treasure, as coveted as dangerous.
This is the story of the events that happens when that treasure is discovered. And it is also the story of a powerful virus that began to spread thousands years ago among men: writing.
